The easiest method to use when it comes to killing chipmunks is lethal traps. There are different traps that may be used, and this includes the traditional snap trap. When the chipmunks are in your attic, you might be tempted to use the glue boards, but this is cruel and it has to be avoided. It is worth noting that you have to follow the law in your state when it comes to killing wild animals, so you need to know them before you can take any action. Shooting the chipmunk can be difficult since it is small and is not likely to stay still. You should only try this method of killing chipmunks if you are good at shooting and can do it safely. Poison had been used for a long period to solve the problems that are caused by the pests, but there are several reasons why this is not the best option. When the chipmunk eats the poison, they may not die immediately and they may enter into small cavities of the house to die there. The carcass will be a health hazard and it will attract other animals. When it starts to decompose, it may become a smelly problem.
When it comes to killing a chipmunk, you should know that it lives in a large family, and this means that you will have to kill a large number of chipmunks to get rid of the problem.

They will determine where the chipmunks are entering in your house and what to do to keep them out. The most common case that makes people want to kill these animals is when they have made their homes in the attic or in the roof cavity.
